Love is never convenient.

Grady is a disaster at relationships. Or, well, at starting them. He moves too late or too slow or falls for absolutely the wrong woman. You know, the sort that is committed to someone else, like his brother’s fiancée.

Claire is done with her veterinary medicine program and is heading on her first dreaded “meet the parents” trip with Ryder. Turns out, when you’re both working your butts off and never see each other, you may not have noticed that you haven’t had a meal together in weeks, forgot the other’s birthday, and haven’t been with each other in months.

Stuck in a pretentious mansion with a snooty mother-in-law and a man you don’t like as well as you thought… and discovering the love of your life isn’t the guy you came with? Worst and best vacation ever.

Love is the Adventure...
But a good story helps

Looking to vacation in Romancelandia?

Epic Reviews

Plot: This enjoyable and steamy paranormal romance does a great job hitting all the beats of a fun, attention-grabbing adventure. The sexual tension between the leads, the vampire mythology, and the conflicts affecting the main and secondary characters are believable, well-plotted, and intriguing. The scenes move swiftly and the book could benefit from some length, but is definitely a credit to the genre.
Prose/Style: Thorne does a great job writing quippy, realistic dialogue, especially the romantic banter between the hero and heroine and the dialogue between the members of the main cast. The action scenes are fast-paced, ratcheting up the tension and conflicts to keep the story moving at a swift but believable pace. The sex scenes are provocative without feeling cliche or gratuitous. At times, the paranormal mythology can get a bit overcrowded with characters, but the overall arc is an impressive reimagining of popular tropes of the genre.
Originality: The [third] installment in Thorne's series is a sexy, inventive addition to the paranormal romance genre. This fun, steamy novel keeps readers on the edge of their seats--and rooting for the hero and heroine--from start to finish.
Character Development/Execution: The hero and heroine are both complex, fully developed characters who have terrific chemistry, both emotionally and physically. The secondary characters, even ones who appear briefly, are distinct and engaging. One particular highlight is the main villain, who is well-developed and doesn't veer into caricature. Overall: 9.00 out of 10

Carrie Thorne enjoys sunsets, long walks on the beach... Oh wait, not that sort of about ;). Seriously, Carrie is incredibly normal. She lives in the middle of the forest in the Pacific Northwest with her amazing kids and her own happily ever after romance novel hero (aka her husband). She loves spending time with her family and exploring the outdoors.
